Worcester senior pastor arrested for alleged child porn
A woman who was previously jailed for child rape has been arrested for child pornography charges. The police’s Ndakhe Gwala said the suspect was a senior pastor of a church in Worcester.
Between 2016 and 2022, the suspect allegedly invited three children to sleepover at her home. Gwala says she drugged the children, undressed them and took pictures.
‘’One of the victims said the suspect locked her in a bedroom and told her to undress and not be uncomfortable because they are both females. She then took naked pictures of her in different angles. Investigations revealed that the suspect and her husband are former convicts, and both served 15 years for rape of minor children. The husband’s involvement in this case is under investigation.’’
The female suspect was arrested by Serial and Electronic Crimes Investigation unit in collaboration with Worcester Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual offences unit, on Monday, 11 July, and was charged with five counts of human trafficking, two counts of rape and one hundred counts of possession and creation of child pornography.
The suspect made her first appearance in the Worcester Magistrate’s court on 13 July 2022 and the case was postponed to 19 July 2022 for a bail application.
